Tossing Salt Presents:
Ultimate Wrestling Q&A
Vince McMahon, Charlotte, Marko Stunt & More
July 9, 2022
I have wasted the entire day. It’s time for a little redemption. It’s the Ultimate Wrestling Q&A. Let’s do this.
Vince McMahon allegedly paid 12 million dollars out to four women to keep his affairs quiet. Should he resign from WWE and leave the company entirely?
Resign as the CEO and Chairman for WWE? He’s already done that. As for leaving the company entirely, let me make one thing clear. So long as there is breath in his body, Vince McMahon will never entirely leave WWE or give up contributing to the company in some way, shape, or form. I think that stepping back in his corporate roles is probably as best as we’re going to get from Vince at this point. If he was to remove himself as the Head of Creative and move to an advisory role, it would probably be better for WWE as a whole, but it’s not going to happen. No Vince in WWE? No way and no how.
Victoria. Does she belong in the WWE Hall of Fame?
Victoria had a great career in both WWE and TNA/Impact Wrestling and that includes many World Championships and memorable television and big show moments. Does she belong in the Hall of Fame? It should have already happened. Not only does she belong, but the sooner, the better.
Bruno Sammartino versus Ric Flair in a 2 out 3 falls match. Who you got in that one?
Flair is the consummate showman, but Bruno was a legit strongman and wrestler. He’d allow Flair to get his spots and look like a million dollars, but the final results would be splitting the first two falls and then Bruno taking a very decisive and strong win in the end.
Curious if you have a modern wrestler you would love to have seen in a team or a match with a wrestler from the past. I am thinking John Moxley teaming with Cactus Jack.
How about a mixed-tag team with The Great Muta and Asuka together, under the guidance of Gary Hart. That would be awesome. How about The Midnight Express & FTR teaming together, with Jim Cornette of course, against The Usos & The Wild Samoans, managed by Captain Lou Albano. That would be an awesome match.
Should WWE allow Charlotte Flair to wrestle at the show featuring her father’s last match?
We don’t know if WWE has been asked or what the plans are for the show as I write this, so it may actually happen. I don’t think WWE likes their talents, especially one as big as Charlotte, working matches outside the company because what if she gets injured? I do think she’ll be there at Ric’s last match and make an appearance on camera as well. WWE and Ric seem to be back on good terms (this week) so they’ll probably make allowances for Ric and this event that they normally wouldn’t allow for anyone else.
What wrestlers were always good guys, but you never liked? Why?
Two guys come to mind, Hulk Hogan and Dusty Rhodes. As for why just look at them. Dusty’s ego and actions/promos towards the other wrestlers had humiliation and heel all over them. The fans cheered Dusty, but his actions were more heel than anything and it just rubbed me wrong. As for Hogan, he was arrogant and condescending to his foes from start to finish. His matches were always punches, sneak attacks, chokes, raking the back, and just blasting his opponents with no regard for rules or how fair they may or may not be. Why either of these men was cheered, I have no idea.
Marko Stunt thought says that he thinks his name being dropped by Christian Cage was “kind of lame”. He’s also announced plans to start his own wrestling company. Thoughts?
If Marko’s name was just being thrown out there for the sake of dropping a name, that would be lame but used in the context it was, it makes sense and drives home a point. I think he’s just complaining to be complaining. As for starting his own wrestling promotion, I hope it works out for him and he makes plenty of money doing so. It’s a rough business, but Marko has name recognition and knows plenty of people so he’s got an advantage that most new promoters don’t. Best of luck to him.
Three worst wrestling podcasts?
For me, the hardest to listen to are Arn Anderson’s “Arn” podcast. Arn is a great wrestler and true legend, but he doesn’t really elaborate much and tries to keep it all kayfabe and stay in character. That’s pretty frustrating and annoying to try and listen to. Ric Flair’s two earlier attempts at podcasting, Woo Nation and Woo Nation Uncensored were unbearable. Flair was drunk as often as not, would spend more time laughing at his own jokes and comments than responding, and would never let anyone else talk without interrupting. And finally, Hannibal. Anything that ignorant idiot tries to talk about is just unlistenable. He’s a piece of shit, period.
And there you go. My thanks for reading. Any thoughts, comments, or questions are welcome and appreciated. Until the next time, take care and be good, my friends. I’ll see you next time at the matches.
